  • My husband (the car enthusiast) had to drop something off in Fall River and we had a few hours to wait. Since the weather was unpleasant we scratched other Newport plans and he wanted to go to this...

  • It is a bit steep, but the Supercars they are currently showing are incredible. Would be nice to have staff around to ask questions of, but the signs they have are pretty informative.

  • On a whim we stopped in to Audrain and it was the best hour spent (we could have spent more time but we had a lunch reservation)! Our docent was a gentleman named Paul and he was so nice and knowledgeable about the cars on the floor. This place is a small and intimate car museum that obviously cares about its collection. With a rotating car collection every 3-4 months, we cannot wait to see the next collection and visit again.
  • Very inviting staff with amazing cars inside. I’m really impressed with the quality of vehicles they have on display. Currently they are doing supercars. They don’t have 100 mediocre cars, they have limited selection of quality cars that get changed out every 3 months. Decent entry price, with Military discounts offered too!
